practicing law.

Oh, so funny. I so love Boston Legal. It's on in re-runs during the day so I sometimes catch an episode I didn't see. Fun.
L&O with Jerry Orbach is just the best and since it's been on so long I am seeing episodes that I have pretty much forgotten. Old age comes in handy this time.
